MD6A Replacement Oil Filter

Might any of you brave MD6A owners out there know of a FRAM, AC DELCO, or something similar (and readily available) to replace the oil filter on the MD6A?

I am heading up to the boat this weekend, and think I may do an oil change and filter change, so was wondering if I might be able to pick up an automotive replacement part? Any suggestions?

Thanks
Chris

Oil Filter

Wix makes a replacement for just about everything. My MD7A uses a
Wix #51335 oil filter. Wix also makes a replacement diesel fuel filter.
Believe you can get correct filter #'s on Wix web site.

be careful, the wix that was my fuel filter is a 10 micron. Volvo specs something like a 3 micron fuel filter.

Wix may have a finer filter. don't know.

Thanks Hoppy and Groundhog!

Hey Groundhog, this is for my Vega. Might have found an AC Delco replacement for it as well, but will need to do a little more research. Will check out the Wix site and see what I come up with. Some have said that the 10 micron is just too small and can sometimes do more harm than good.

I use a 1307 from NAPA for my MD11C.

Not sure if that will help you though!

Perhaps it might help you cross reference something.

Will look that up. There is a NAPA a few miles away and that would be very handy. I will stop by there and see if they can cross reference. I have always found it (in shops such as VIP, NAPA, etc..) that it is best to have the information ahead of time, as they tend to look at you cross-eyed if you have to ask for help finding something...

Thanks for the info
Chris
